What am I about: As I begin my 31st year of practice, I am more convinced about our bodies remarkable recovery capability whatever age, tragedy, abuse or neglect they have endured. That is if fed and cared for correctly. Functional Medicine is what I do, balancing the body’s chemistry, enabling the healing process to proceed naturally. What I do not do is chase symptoms or diseases, nor cover them up, but discovering by interview, examination, various lab tests, saliva tests, and other diagnostic tools what went wrong with your health in the first place.
Many more diagnosis codes are being created for new conditions of the human body. Why? What is happening in us that our bodies are breaking down more easily? Let’s find out what has caused your body’s defenses to break down in some way so that the names like Chronic Fatigue, Lower back pain syndrome, Irritable Bowel, Neck Pain, Joint Pain, Polymyalgia, Candida Fungus; Allergies; Colitis; Chrohns and Ulcerative Colitis; Gluten Intolerance; Tension Headaches; Migraines, Pre-Diabetic Syndrome; Diabetes Mellitus; Osteopenia and Osteoporosis; Anxiety and Depression and on and on won’t be given to you.
How do I do this? I am a Doctor of Chiropractic medicine, more specifically, trained as a Chiropractic Internist. At this office your care plan of health will be determined by a combination of specific diagnostic tests and balancing of the nervous system by the science of chiropractic care. It will individualized. The care plan is not a generalized treatment of symptoms alone. I listen closely to the history you provide and will probe with you deeper with my questions of concern as we meet. The cause of your complaints will be searched for and addressed. I will you give answers to the best of my ability addressing what may be out of balance in your system. Then I will couple that with my interpretive skills to produce a very specific care plan written by me to you. You can then live the ABUNDANT LIFE you were created to lead.
Also: Do you feel well? I can work with you too! Having normal diagnostic tests run is vital to compare to as you age. It’s called Preventative Medicine.
Follow up is what I am all about. You will not be left alone to struggle through the healing process.
